Jerusalem Post: Sarah Palin arrives in Israel, set to meet Netanyahu

"A leading light in the fiscally conservative Tea Party movement"
Via Reuters, the Jerusalem Post reports that Gov. Palin's flight from India has arrived in Israel at Ben-Gurion International Airport :
Leading US Republican Sarah Palin began a private visit to Israel on Sunday, her first to the Jewish state, and planned to meet Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and tour holy sites.

Palin, a 2008 vice presidential candidate, is a potential White House contender in 2012 and a leading light in the fiscally conservative Tea Party movement.


Israeli media described her trip as a bid to show support for Israel, whose standing is strong among US voters, and gain more experience in international affairs ahead of a possible presidential run.

Palin, who is keeping her supporters guessing on whether she will run for the presidency, made no comment to reporters on arrival at Tel Aviv's Ben-Gurion airport for the two-day visit.
On the itinerary for the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate is dinner with Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife on Monday, after visiting holy sites in Jerusalem, including the Western Wall.
